About this Book

Print Excerpt


I had no news of Harry. I tried to get in touch with him through the state police, through the prison, and through Roth, but without success. I paced my apartment, tormented by thousands of questions, plagued by the memory of his weird call. By the end of the weekend, I couldn't take it anymore, and I decided that I had little choice but to go to see what was happening in New Hampshire.
